|C.A. Sinclair - Bells (ca185) - C.A. Sinclair|
Bells was entirely made in real time (plus some editing) on my computer using my own software. Both of its tracks use a Tibetan temple cymbal as the main sound source. The first track, "Bells I" is a more formalistic exploration of the cymbal sound itself, without taking its "cultural context" into account. The second track "Look Into The Rising Sun", uses percussion and guitar samples along with the cymbals and has a more "eastern" or "exotic" sound." C.A...

Structurally, I was particularly interested in the kind of "accidental rhythms" you get through looping or LFOs and in "song-like", progressive st...

"Grayscale Is Failing" was composed from variety of digital and treated analog field recordings. The resulting compositions were conceived through a variety of computer-based manipulations. For me, this grouping of works has assumed a very visual quality, as the source recordings used to create it were procured in the metropolitan districts of Kansas City, USA during the winter of 2007. I feel that these works tend to portray a digital vision of the subtle aspects of winter in urban America; it'...
